It is based on the wisdom and advice I have learned over 20+ years of marriage. I want to share with other men the lessons that I have learned in hopes that they can have a deeper and more meaningful relationship with their Bride. You will find throughout the book that I refer to my wife as my Bride. This is a term of endearment and affection that serves as a reminder of the special relationship we have. Even though we have been married for 20+ years, I still refer to her as my Bride. I have heard it said many that there are three areas in our life that bring stress to a marriage: 1. Money 2. Children 3. Intimacy In this book you will find that we address these three areas as well as several others. The book is designed with seven key sections: Section One: THE LITTLE THINGS THAT MATTER This section has some simple ideas and concepts that can jump start your relationship. Section Two: LISTENING AND THE THINGS WE SAY This section has some simple concepts to read and understand, and are very powerful when applied, but will require great discipline to put into action. Section Three: HOW WE SPEND OUR TIME We all only have 24 hours in a day and this section helps the reader think about how to best allocate their time. Section Four: SPIRITUAL INTIMACY This section is all about drawing closer to your Bride from a spiritual perspective. Section Five: PHYSICAL INTIMACY This section is all about drawing closer to your Bride from a physical perspective. Section Six: THE THINGS YOU NEED TO DO AND REMEMBER This section is all about motivation and intention. Section Seven: HOW WE SPEND OUR MONEY This section will describe several of the key pitfalls in marriage and resources for improving how money is used. There is an additional section on FINAL THOUGHTS as well as a bonus chapter. I have broken the ideas into 52 short chapters that can provide the reader with one concept to work on each week. There are practical examples from my own marriage as well as lessons learned from other sources. Finally, this book does not attempt to be a comprehensive guide to marriage and family. It is more of an idea generator and thought starter. You will find that I point the reader to many different resources that have proven very helpful in my relationship with my Bride and children. I hope you enjoy the book and it proves a useful resource and guide.
